    Nice post,its always nice to get tips for better power savings I use a nice android battery saver app called JuiceDefender,it does most of what you say above without the need for your intervention...and that is a really nice thing,as we know the more WE have to monitor,the LESS we actually do it,lol. This automates alot of the tasks like turning wi-fi off when the phone goed to standby,and restarting it at preset intervals, the default is 15 minutes,but you can extend that to hours if you dont want to be bothered by constant updates from push services. Of all the battery saver apps I've used, this one had the most effect on my phones(and my wife's phones!) battery life. By the way,there are free and paid versions of the app,and the free one is more than enough for most users,just a heads up on that one
